After almost a year after its release, Saber Interactive’s World War Z video-game will finally allow different platforms to play together. That’s right, World War Z cross-play is coming very soon.
As part of the final update for World War Z Season 2, players will be able to experience World War Z cross-play on March 23rd. The new cross-play feature will only apply to the game’s PvE modes.

Initially, World War Z cross-play will be only available on Xbox One and PC. PlayStation 4 players will be thrown into the mix eventually, but there’s no date on that yet.
Unfortunately, World War Z will not support cross-play parties to chat with and invite friends from different platforms. World War Z cross-play has instead been achieved through a unified matchmaking pool that will randomly pair players together.
The March 23rd update will also include a few more bonuses for players. There will be new weapon variants – all free – alongside a bunch of new missions objectives. The update well also introduce since new paid DLC character skins.
The War Heroes character skin DLC arrives on the same day as the Crossplay Update next Monday, March 23!
